Over the last century, choreographers have explored new approaches to music, rather than simply translating scores into dance. This talk will outline these ways of using music, including those of dialogue and counterpoint, tracing the work of several choreographers and composers, culminating in a discussion of Alexei Ratmansky’s acclaimed Shostakovich Trilogy.
